Puff, the Magic Pastry


I made puff pastry. Now, i know there are some people out there who've been making puff pastry since they were 18-months old, but it took me 32 & 1/2 years to do...and I did it in a food processor!! How, you may ask--I don't keep baking/cooking secrets, so I'll share. Go get Nick Malgieri's new book, The Modern Baker. The puff pastry recipe came from that book. With the magic pastry I made Spinach-Feta turnovers (also from the book). I couldn't stop bragging about those turnovers--diiivine!! (I did change the recipe a bit here and there...always add some chopped scallions and a touch of freshly grated nutmeg to a spinach-feta combination--just makes it better, trust me). See, I'm a baker who shares, 'cause that's what it's all about!!

Big thank you to all who had the turnovers and all who have had our quiche and come in or call or write saying that it's the best quiche ever. We think so...and are so glad that you think so too!!

I'll be blogging more this weekend...oh, we sold out again Saturday at 4:15p.m. Thank you, God. I'm going t o keep dreaming bigger and better dreams and see what happens next.

grace & peace.
